Who do the Leaf protect in an expansion draft?

http://sports.yahoo.com/news/nhl-exp...0232--nhl.html

[took idea from the flyers board]

Quote:
Back then, the league’s 28 teams were presented with a choice: protect one goalie, five defensemen and nine forwards or protect two goalies, three defensemen and seven forwards. And that’s where the first tough calls had to be made.


Here is Yahoo Sports guess at who the leafs protect.
Quote:
Toronto Maple Leafs (one goalie)
Forwards: Bozak, Frattin, Grabovski, Kadri, Kessel, Lupul, MacArthur, Van Riemsdyk
Defensemen: Gardiner, Gunnarsson, Holzer, Liles, Phaneuf
Goalies: Reimer
Personally I'd protect Kulemin and leave Mac or Bozak.
So Leaf fans, who do you protect?

So no need to protect prospects? Makes the choice pretty easy Pretty much protect the only players I want to keep then, probably would have extra spaces to protect players that would go unused haha.

Kessel, Lupul (his rights), JVR, Grabo, Bozak (rights), Frattin, Kadri, Kulemin and ?????
Phaneuf, Gunnarsson, Gardiner, Holzer, and I guess Liles for future trade value.
Reimer due to lack of a better choice.

Gardiner, Frattin and Kadri don't need to clear waivers. We get them for free according to the rules.

Well being that the article has the likes of Gardiner, Kadri, Frattin, Landeskog, RNH etc all being protected, lets say you've had to of played 40 games in the past two seasons to be eligible.
Does anybody remember the rules in 1998/1999/2000?

Pretty sure there would be more 2012 draftees protected. Belanger over Yakupov? Liles over Rielly. No Reinhart. Not bloody likely

A contraction draft is more likely.

I think there's a better chance that the league loses some teams after this lockout than it gaining some.

not if there's a new CBA signed, I would agree if the PA decertifies.

Quote:
Exempt from the Expansion Draft are (i) all first and second-year pros and
(ii) unsigned draft choices (except unsigned draft choices drafted from
European clubs in the 1996 Entry Draft or before and who remain unsigned).

So if they stick with the same expansion rules as they did 12ish years ago, I guess that means Gardiner, and Frattin are exempt, and Kadri is eligible.

This thread was merely just a hypothetical thread, this Lockout is freaking boring and their is barely anything to discuss. Although I really don't know squat about the business side of hockey, I really doubt the League will fold teams. I remember hearing that the League wanted to expand to 2 more teams for realignment then run with four divisions in each conference. Heres another article speculating on expansion after a CBA is settled

Would it not be a slap in the face to some of those good players on horrid contracts to be put in the draft? Say Lou, Vinny, actually now that I think about it Quebec would prob get the expansion and two french players like Lou and Vinny might look pretty damn good.

Goaltender: Reimer

Defencemen: Phaneuf , Gardiner , Rielly, Gunnarsson, Liles

Forwards: Kessel , Lupul , JVR , Grabovski , Frattin , Kadri , MacArthur, Kulemin, Bozak/Biggs

* We need to acquire a #1 centerman which makes Bozak expandable. He dosn't fit into a bottom 6 role , so theres no sense in protecting a guy that dosn't fit our future plans...

Not entirely true. Some of them have talent.
